Our May Meeting

We had a group of nine at our May Meeting, held during those hot days in early May. We had a wide-ranging discussion from the resignation of Arsene Wenger at Arsenal to replacing the National Anthem!

To give you an idea of what we come up with in our discussions, we have published the Group's collective answer to two questions:

The proposed ban on petrol and diesel engines:

Whether we are heading for a cashless and cheque-less society:

Do have a look.

Our Next Meeting - Tuesday 12 June 2018 at 2 p.m.

At our May Meeting, we agreed to discuss the following four questions at our June Meeting:

  1. Should the UK get involved in other country's problems?
  2. Should the 'smacking' law in England (where parents retain the defence of 'reasonable punishment' when necessary) be changed in line with Scotland and Wales, where hitting a child is illegal under any circumstances?
  3. Should the UK parole system and the rules on sentencing be reviewed?
  4. With an increase in gun and knife crime and random acts of terrorism by individuals, should we reconsider arming the police?

Do come along as a taster and give your views on these topics and listen to what others have to say. We would love to see you.

Please do not hesitate to contact one of us if you would like any further information:
